For marketers, 2021 was a year of growth and reckoning. We emerged from the challenges of 2020 with a bit more understanding and focus, and an eagerness to adapt. With 2022 on the horizon, we're not letting that momentum wane. Before we celebrate the new year though, we couldn’t help but look back at all the lessons we’ve learned in 2021. Fueled by consumers’ expanding adoption of digital behaviors, we turned to new tactics like performance marketing while striving to continue long-term brand building for a stronger, lasting connection to our audiences. From a deeper look at data and social listening to the increased use of influencer marketing, here are some of Hart’s top takeaways from our own agency experts this past year.
Effective June 1, Hart employees will have the option to work remotely or in our offices.

Health screenings and safety guidelines are in place for all who enter our buildings to protect our employees and visitors to the best extent possible.
March 16, 2020 Update

Family and Focus: How Hart Approaches Moments of Inflection
In 1965, my dad found some space between his washing machine and dryer, put his head down and went to work for partners like you. His vision and passion remains instilled in every Hart employee today, each of whom understands that our clients make us who we are. Together in uncertain times, we know one thing is true – partnerships and trust matter. We are blessed to have great clients, and thank all of our partners for being there with us through good times and challenging times. I wanted to personally communicate a few things on behalf of our entire team.
